RE: Happy Holidays to All, now cat door

I don't know about you southerners - even your cats!. My cat Shimmy
insists on going out even if it is 20 below 0. This morning, about 10
degrees, he went out for awhile, when I called him to come in he said
he'd prefer to sit on this nice patch of frozen snow for a little
longer. Fortunately I got him to come in before I went to work.
